My Doctor Wants Me To Go For DBS Soon, Can Someone Who Went Through The Procedure Let Me Know All The Ugly Details

My Doctor Wants Me To Go For DBS Soon, Can Someone Who Went Through The Procedure Let Me Know All The Ugly Details

Would like to know the bad parts of the operation, how long was recouperation, was it difficult to be awake for the procedures, do you still have to take meds, can you drive a car?

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member, oh, I just saw your post here and just answered your other post. OK while I got you, and you had dbs, I have a few questions, how many different settings did you have to go through before you saw some of your symptoms go away? I know there are hundreds of settings but nothing has done anything for me yet. And my symptoms seem to be getting worse since the dbs, could that be possible? Dr. told me to try to not take my meds that close together and to space them out more but I seem to need them more often than before. I usually take them every two hours, they wanted me to space them out to every three hours, but I could use them every hour and a half. Hope you can help me with my questions. Bean
